BACSA - the British Association for Cemeteries in South Asia

This association was set up in 1977 to bring together people with a concern for the many thousands of British and other European cemeteries, isolated graves and monuments in South Asia. The  BACSA Archive has been built up over 30+ years and forms a unique record of 1,300+ European cemeteries in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and with some in places from the Middle East to Afghanistan, Indonesia, Malaysia and China. The site offers a BACSA Search of a unified index to BACSA’s cemetery books. These record the names and memorial inscriptions of people buried in European cemeteries in India, South Asia, and elsewhere. This is a work in progress as a small band of volunteers work to transcribe the indexes and upload them to the database.
